Would it be possible that this MOD also prevent users from using trailing periods (i.e., .....)?

I was wondering what happened to this. There was a thread about this and we never heard back from you.

I think the ultimate product would allow you to set usergroups, what punctuation you can block, and how much punctuation until it starts getting limited. And of course applying this to more than thread titles.

Just my $.02

It kind of works, but...

If a user writes "Hello!!!???" and you have a limit of 1, then it strips out all the ???. Instead it *should* make it "Hello!?"

HTH.

That's how it works I'm afraid. I'll have a look to get around it, but that's how the regex works.

Thanks for looking in to it, I wonder whether it can loop the routine on each character or something?
